Best Processor for Dell Optiplex GX270

This question is not answered

Hello everyone, 

I was just wondering what would be the best & compatible processor for me to buy for my Dell Optiplex GX270? I currently am trying to find one that would be at least a 2.7ghz or higher processor but I'm having no luck. If anyone would be able to help me that would be great, if someone could get back to me ASAP that would be great.

Thank You,

    No Dual core anything, Single core, Socket 478 P4 only.

    The Socket 478, 3.06/533/512k P-4 is the fastest processor you can use for the Optiplex 270 

    Prior to installing the processor, check that BIOS version A07 is installed, when support for newer processors was added.

  • Would you be able to link me to a processor to buy? Still having no luck.

  • SiCxKingofKings

    eBay is a good place to locate and buy obsolete processors.

    Note, All Mobile Socket P4 processors, cannot be installed, as they are not compatible.

    If you are referring to the Optiplex GX270

    The Optiplex GX270 does not support any AMD processors, they require a different motherboard and socket.

  • That really sucks because I really like AMD, if it comes down to it I may buy a new mother board. Depending on how things go with this new processor I just bought.

    Good luck with the upgrade.
